The name of my business is iTutor Computers which displays a look and feel of the corporate world. The problem I'm having is as follows the front of the business card uses the font Garamond and Quicksand. Which I think plays very well together, but the back of the card which will have "Spot UV" applied to the font of Quicksand I have been just informed that the font is to thin. So do you have any suggestions for a font that I can use on the back of the card which will need to play well with Garamond & Quicksand? From my understanding of fonts I should use a rounded,sans-serif but I'm not sure.   I have included a picture of the back of the card

What is Spot UV?

The very first image has the "Spot UV" applied it's the shinny black print

What's wrong with the Quicksand font

Quicksand is a fine font which the spot uv will not work with.

I'm looking to replace the font within the blue area with a font that has

the same feel and that works well with Garamond

OC Diva,

Quicksand is a fine font which the spot uv will not work with.

Depending on the application, you may add to its thickness without using Bold; in Illustrator, you may use the Appearance palette/panel flyout and Add New Stroke, half of which will be added to the original shape of each letter.

Thanks Jacob for the tip, actually that's what exactly I decided to do.

Simply because the while font thing is just a can of worms that I think I

better leave alone.
